Using this cookie dough to make a cookie pizza is 99.9% easier than using it to make cookies. It cuts down on about 2 hours of your time because (1) you don’t have to chill the cookie dough and (2) you don’t have to roll any individual cookies. All you do is make the cookie dough and press onto a pizza pan. And since the cookie pizza is a thin layer, it takes a short amount of time to bake and a short amount of time to cool. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch (aka cornflour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins (Baking Bites)Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

The muffins are made with a fairly typical muffin batter, accented with vanilla and nutmeg – as well as with plenty of zucchini! Many zucchini recipes are chocolate based, which not only tastes good, but disguises the presence of zucchini in the finished baked good. In these muffins, you’ll clearly be able to see the zucchini.
